Built-ins-fill your needs and your space

Why do a custom built-in?  

  1. You can use an entire space, use spaces wisely (under stairs, bathroom corner, living room wall etc)
  2. You can design specialized storage to display collections or hide objects you need but do not want to see.
  3. Customizing anything in your home leaves a part of you in the home…forever!
  4. Bring a new style to your home, some people want to add a modern touch to their home, but not change the entire traditional feel.
  5. Built-ins can make sense of spaces; for example built-in book shelves can make a library out of an office, or a hutch can make a den into a dining room.
  6. Color and Wallpaper can be used in/on a built-in and this can bring a splash of color or pattern to a room!
Great wallpaper makes this built in pop!
